MIAMI, FL, Feb. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EzFill Holdings, Inc. (“EzFill” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EZFL), a pioneer and emerging leader in the mobile fuel industry has named industry veteran Daniel Arbour to its Board of Directors. In addition, Mr. Arbour will provide Consulting Services in which he will act as the Company’s outsourced Chief Revenue Officer. Reporting to EzFill CEO Mike McConnell, Arbour will have oversight of the Company’s technology team, as well as sales and marketing to develop go-to-market strategies, pricing strategies and business models.
Arbour brings more than 16 years of experience building multi-disciplinary high performance work teams and working to ensure corporate and organizational deliverables are established, most recently as the Principal and Founder of Mountain Views Strategy, a high-level management consulting firm. Prior to this, and for more than 16 years, Arbour held various management and sales positions at Shell Oil Company, including the creation of Shell TapUp in North America, a digitally enabled mobile fueling start-up, delivering exponential sales growth of over 1000% across 25 states and 2 continents after only 3 years, becoming the largest mobile fueling company in North America.

With even more exciting developments planned, this company has a very bright future in the vehicle service and mobility space and is well positioned to accelerate the energy transition with fleets and consumers alike.”
Mike McConnell, EzFill Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are delighted to have Dan join the EzFill team. We are eager to draw on his experience and contacts he made while building TapUp. His experience ranges from the early start-up phase, scaling the business, negotiating large service agreements, working with regional and local governments, to a multi-million-dollar acquisition and subsequent merger with a rival business. He’s a soup-to-nuts manager and we look forward to his contributions.”
EzFill is a leader in the fast-growing mobile fuel industry, with the largest market share in its home state of Florida. Its mission is to disrupt the gas station fueling model by providing consumers and businesses with the convenience, safety, and touch-free benefits of on-demand fueling services brought directly to their locations. For commercial and specialty customers, at-site delivery during downtimes enables operators to begin their daily operations with fully fueled vehicles. For more information, visit www.ezfl.com.
With the number of gas stations in the U.S. continuing to decline, corporate giants such as Shell, Exxon, GM, Bridgestone, Enterprise, and Mitsubishi have recognized the increasing shift in consumer behavior and are investing in the fast growing on-demand mobile fueling industry. As the only company to provide fuel delivery in three vertical segments - consumer, commercial, and specialty including marine, we believe EzFill is well positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for convenient and cost-efficient mobile fueling options.
